In a bid to consolidate their gains in Cross River state with the decamping of erstwhile bigwigs of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP to the All Progressives Congress, APC in the state, the ruling party in its recent restructuring has admitted former Senate Leader, Senator Victor Ndoma Egba, SAN and former governor of the State, Chief Clement Ebri into the party’s Board of Trustees, BoT.
In separate letters from the National Secretary of the APC to the duo, the party applauded their contribution to national development and informed them of the decision of the leadership of the APC to admit them into the Board of Trustees of the ruling party.
In a chat with CrossRiverWatch, Leader of the 7th Senate, Ndoma Egba confirmed that he received a letter from the party informing him of his new status and thanked the party for finding of worthy of continued service to Nigeria and the development of democracy in Nigeria.
He assured the leadership of the party that he will go all out to work and ensure the APC consolidates their gains in Cross River state.
The BoT is billed to be inaugurated on a yet to be announced date after prior postponement arising from disagreement among party leaders.
The National Chairman of the APC, Chief John Oyegun told journalists last week that “I doubt strongly if the inauguration will still hold this week because the (drafting) committee must finalise work on the constitution before the date for the inauguration will be determined.”
The APC has been unable to set up its BoT, a year after it won the Presidency due to what has been attributed to internal squabbles among top leaders of the party over the BoT chairmanship slot.
